Sunday in the kitchen

Happy July 1st! It’s hard to believe that we are halfway through the year already. It’s no secret that I dislike the summer months, so I am very glad that June passed so quickly. Here’s to hoping that July and August do the same.

Today was much different than last Sunday. This time last week, it was very windy and rainy as we waited for Tropical Storm Debby to decide where she was headed. Today, it has been sunshine and hot. I haven’t left the house at all today. I made breakfast, lunch, and dinner at home (this rarely happens!) with napping and reading in between. I like to call it a mental health day.

For dinner tonight, I made one of hubby’s favorites, turkey rolls. His mom used to make this and I got the recipe from her years ago. It is very easy to make and makes great leftovers. After eating dinner, there will be enough left for lunch for 3 days. I love that!


Turkey Rolls

  • 1 1/4 lb. lean ground beef
  • Canola oil
  • 1/4 white onion, diced
  • 2 slices white bread
  • 2 packets turkey gravy
  • 1 pack pre-sliced oven-roasted turkey breast (12 slices)
  • Salt and pepper

In a large skillet, sauté white onion. Add ground beef and cook till browned. Tear slices of white bread into small pieces and add to ground beef and onion, cook for about 5 minutes. While the ground beef mixture is cooking, make turkey gravy following directions on packet.

Drain ground beef mixture in strainer. On a plate, add a spoonful of ground beef mixture to each slice of turkey breast and roll up. Put in 9×13 glass baking dish (ungreased). If there is any ground beef mixture left over, add to top of turkey rolls. Pour turkey gravy over top of turkey rolls.

Bake in 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Enjoy!

  1. Never heard of turkey rolls but they sound interesting and nice

  2. Looks delicious! I haven’t cooked in weeks! I have made a few simple things in the kitchen like sauteing vegetables and re-heating things.

    Hope you have a wonderful week!
